    Video of my gloss red wrapped 540i with some custom work

    Hey guys,i have a stock 540i that i modded,me and my brother wrapped it in red,wrapped all the mouldings to resemble M5 trims,dual exhaust from a stock bumper,lips added to the front bumper,carbon fibre wraped interior,painted all trims/grill black,wrapped rims,and a exhaust cutout made by me.
    Take in consideration that all body parts are stock,non M5,nothing was bought (except for lights oh and i cant remove the M5 sticker from the back..it'll rip the wrap..so sry about that).The front bumper was finished last night and i think it looks better than the stock one.
    If you dont like it,dont bash it.
    A simple,"i dont like it" will suffice...
    Anyway,here's the video.and some pics.

    This pic was done before i fully finished the lips.The video shows the finished product.

    I like it. I think you need a front lip. I have one I'll give you for free if you cover shipping. I believe it's an eBay replica lip. Bought it for my 99 540i but sold it before installing.

    front end does look incomplete. looks like you ripped it off and never replaced it. Get something on it and itll look good. And lows...you need to go low to make those wheels work with that car.

    Looks great, but the car could use a drop + spacers, and a lip of sorts.

    I did it myself.something i would not suggest as a DIY lol.Unless you have someone to help you.Cost wise,about 1000$ just in wrap.And about 30hrs of labour.

    I spent 4 k on the car...i dont know how long its gonna run.It runs perfect now but just sayin...it has 235,000km and its 15 yrs old.I'm thinking of selling it and maybe buying a E60 or a 7series/6series.
    So i dont want to spend too much.
    Spacers for e39 (with the stupid hub size) will cost me about 200$+ as for a drop,i have the M tehnic suspension so i need coilovers,from what i understand springs are rare/expensive for this suspension.Coilovers are 1000$+

    well i thought it would look nice, and it fits the quad exhaust, essentially its the same thing as having ANY m5 part ( ie- bumpers, mirrors,rims etc.) , since its still fake. Its too late to take it off though...

    I was thinking of installing it but cutting it and wrapping it so that looks better.Essentially,cutting the ends of it and fitting it between these lips.

    Almmmmost there. Def +1 on a new front bumper, a lip wont help as its ugly as hell. And maybe less m5 badge. She sounds great though...
